Im using Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.  I LOVE Elaine and she has been wonderful to work with.  I saw another cake they had done for a San Diego bride and LOVED it – it was exactly what i wanted.  their cake is super tasty, too.

I used Sweet Cheeks too. For the same reasons ClairDarling listed! Elaine is a pleasure to work with, the cakes are delicious, and pricewise they were very reasonable. I wanted a really simple cake, so design wasn’t really that big of a deal to me but I know they had a lot of great ones.

I posted this in another thread, so now I’m going to start sounding like I advertise for them, haha. I don’t, I swear! But Grove Pastries in Lemon Grove is REALLY awesome. They have amazing-tasting and -looking cakes and can do pretty much whatever you want.

I don’t know the cost for a wedding cake because I only got introduced to them through my good friend, who has used them for everything (birthdays, etc.) for a long time and used them for her wedding, too. But their prices for everything else seem really reasonable, and they are VERY talented.

I’m also using Sweet Cheeks. Elaine is the best! We ordered 4 custom cakes for my FMIL’s 50th b-day party on New Years Eve and they were all fantastic. 

Love them!

Baby Cakes and Flour Power.  My mom and I had a delicious day of tasting!  I recommend both (of course I haven’t actually gotten the cakes yet – just tasted about 20000 cupcakes!)

Ali,

Well, for the 4 cakes they made for my FMIL’s party, it was… $340 I believe. And it fed like, 60 people and we had left overs.

Our cake, with tax, cake stand, etc., will be roughly $700. 3 tier cake, two different flavors, made for 125 people.

And if you talk to Elaine, tell her Ashley and Matt sent you 🙂 She’ll get a kick out of it. I bug her about something at least once a week… our cake, groom’s cake, surprise cake for the FIL’s 30th wedding anniversary…

We used Flour Power for our wedding: 3-tier, 3 different flavors, buttercream frosting with a simple design that fed 100 people for $450. We had plenty leftover. We also got a free 6 inch groom’s cake and didn’t have to pay for delivery.
